Investing in shore power – when should it be prioritized and when does it pose a high risk of stranded assets
Björn Boström is since 2008 Managing Director at Port of Ystad. He has 39 years of experience in shipping in companies like Saga Line, DFDS, Lion Ferry, DSØ A/S (i.a. The Hydrofoils Copenhagen-Malmö), the domestic island ferry company Ven-Trafiken AB and now Port of Ystad. He has a broad experience of ferry operations and has worked as Sales Representative, Sales- and Marketing Manager, Route Manager and Managing Director.
The port has undergone a major development as two new ferry berths, for vessels up to 240 meters, were built ready for service in January 2021, an investment of more than 100 million euro securing the future port operations.
Since 2008, Port of Ystad has strengthened its position as Sweden’s third largest ferry passenger port. The volumes still increase with new records during the last years, in 2022 with new records regarding cars, passengers as well as ship calls.
